It depends on what you want from this...think about this less about him and more about what you need around it. This may not be the relationship for you if this is how communication goes, but without putting yourself out there a bit and trying something new, you will never know if things can be worked on. Again, it's about you and what you want from it. Why can't he come to you and talk? who knows, but as you say, he isn't great about communicating. So use this experience as a learning one for yourself and ask to sit and talk with him and see what can be worked through. At least then when you leave, you can know that you did what was possible to make things work. You may be happier for it.
